Now divers may reach the world-famous coral reefs of the Straits of Tiran in Sharm El Sheikh in less than 20 minutes via our new express speedboat service. We run up to three dive trips and three separate snorkelling excursions every day by speedboat. The ‘early bird’ dive trip at 7am provides an ideal opportunity to explore the famous Tiran reefs, and a chance to spot the schooling hammerhead sharks near Jackson Reef – at a time when most other divers will still be having breakfast. All departures are from the private jetty at Grand Rotana Resort and Spa, near Sharks Bay, and we offer free air-conditioned transfers to/from all hotels in Sharm El Sheikh. At 8.5 metres long, the purpose-built speedboat accommodates comfortably six passengers with full diving equipment. The speedboat’s twin 175 hp engines provide a rapid ride, at a cruising speed of 26 knots (approximately 50 km per hour). We’re really excited about the extra choice and flexibility the new speedboat gives our guests. As more and more divers come on holiday with family members or children who aren’t divers yet, they can still do fantastic dives in Tiran, while leaving time for other activities. The speedboat is also proving popular with guests seeking a more exclusive trip, since it can also be hired for private diving and snorkelling excursions. One dive by speedboat costs 15 Euros supplement in addition to the daily diving charge, and may be booked directly with us at the dive centre. Private rental of the speedboat for diving costs 275 Euros.
